COVERED with JAM / Press

"Holloway & Steele, Steal the Show at Everyone Shred’s Orchestra at Gypsy Sally's Washington, D.C. November 21, 2015" Gypsy Sally’s was the fourth and final stop of this edition of Everyone Orchestra, a rotating cast of typically jam-band musicians crafting full-length shows that are entirely improvised and led by conductor Matt Butler. With the iconic Steve Kimock on guitar, son and drummer John Kimock (Mike Gordon Band), Chris Jacobs on guitar and vocals (The Bridge), keyboardist Todd Stoops (RAQ), and Ashish Vyas on bass (Thievery Corporation). Surprisingly, perhaps the top honors for shredding may have gone to local favorites and openers, Covered With Jam with Dan Steele on guitar and Holloway on sax trading licks and simply burning the house down. I was left pondering the question, “Why haven’t I been to more Covered With Jam shows? I’ll be sure not to miss them on future dates and you shouldn’t either.

“The State Theatre Presents Covered With Jam, Ron Holloway, Sol Roots And More On July 5th On Saturday July 5th, The State Theatre presents Jamband Night 4, featuring some of the best in regional and local music, including the bands Covered with Jam, Ron Holloway, Sol Roots Trio, Colin Thompson Band, and Stomp Status.

“Vienna VA’s Jammin Java will host a night of ‘late night jams” this evening, March 2. The night will kick off with a 90-minute set by Furthur guitarist John Kadlecik and Djesben, a trio of multi-instrumentalists with roots in traditional jazz, bebop, bossa nova and world music. Warren Haynes Band saxophonist Ron Holloway will then close the show as part of the local music collective Covered with Jam. The ensemble will bring together a number of Washington, DC and Virginia-based musicians with ties to the funk, jazz, jam, rock and blues scenes.”

"The band wasted no time getting the place shaking with a blistering versions of "Black Hearted Woman" and a dance/funk version of the Stone's "Miss You". This was my first time seeing CWJ and I was very impressed with the bands musical talents and energy. This was none more obvious than the band's cover of Traffic's immortal song "Low Spark of High Heel Boys" with its deep jazz-rock grooves. Not to be outdone, the band's cover of Phish's "Maze" jammed on with a jazz/funk motif that any Phish fan would no doubt approve"
